Making Shambala Bracelets
When I first saw these beautiful bracelets in my friend Sally’s bead shop, along with pots of shiny irresistible Shambala beads, both my creative urges and my magpie urges kicked in, and I knew I just had to make myself one of them. I can’t actually believe I have got this far in life not knowing about macrame knotting, but now that I have discovered it, wow! So easy, and yet yielding such satisfying results.
There are loads and loads of very good tutorials and instructions online for how to make these bracelets, the video tutorials on Youtube are particularly helpful, so I am not going to attempt to write my own instructions here. If you want to make them, I guarantee you will find instructions that suit you, whether you want written ones, photographs or an online video.
These were so fun and easy to make, I have made one for every female member of my family (apart from Aunty Sarah, I still need to make hers but am unsure what colour to go for, something sophisticated though). I have also had a friend round for coffee, cake and Shambala bracelet making, that was great fun!
